DSEN FOUNDATION AT A GLANCE

VISION

 

DSEN Foundation vision is to create empowered indigent Nigerian families by restoring hope, basic human dignity and saving lives. 

 

WHO WE ARE

We work to empower, restore hope, dignity and save lives. We begin by identifying indigent families whose poverty puts them and their children at a greater risks of dying from hunger, medical or mental health illness.

 

DSEN Foundation then seeks to meet the identified areas of needs of these families. The needs are food insecurity, lack of medical and mental health access, no access to basic education for the children and targeted skills training for the adults.

MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES

In a continent where mental healthcare is limited, DSEN Foundation bridges the gap by focusing on utilizing interpersonal and family-focused psychotherapy as treatment interventions for indigent women living with mental health in Nigeria. In addition, the foundation educate families, healthcare providers and health institutions regarding mental health while advocating for those living with it.

The interpersonal and family-focused psychotherapy as treatment interventions is an 8 weeks, once a week, 2 hours session led by DSEN Foundation trained facilitators involves interaction with adults especially women affected by mental illness. The facilitators allow the participants to talk openly and freely about what they are going through in a supportive and nonjudgmental environment. Through the interactions, facilitators can identify the root causes and/or triggers of the participants’ mental illness. The overall goal of the interventions is to help the participants change their behaviors or overcome their problems while learning coping strategies. At the end of the weeks programs, participates are given supplies of food items for their families.

BASIC EDUCATION

While many children are attending schools, children of indigent families are usually at home due to lack of money for schools fees. Some are on the streets hawking  snacks and wares to make money for their families. They hawk foods on the streets to commuters during school hours. These children have experienced atrocity such as rape, human trafficking and/or motor vehicle accidents. 

Through your  generous donations, we provide school fees and distribute school supplies to the children. By doing so, you remove them from the streets or staying home and place them in the classrooms where they belong during school hours.

ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT (SKILLS ACQUISITION)

DSEN Foundation believes in investing in women's economic empowerment. When we empower women, we feed a nation. Indigent women in Nigeria do not have access to decent jobs or access to banks for loans. The socio-economic status of these indigent women are enhanced through economic empowerment of skills acquisition.

DSEN Foundation offers life skills training while providing the women with psych-social support. With your donations, skills such as fashion designing, hairstyling and trading apprenticeships are completed. After a successful completion of the above apprenticeships, the indigent women participants have access to micro-finance to start businesses through donations from  DSEN Foundation generous donors.
